How do I get Trello links to open in the Trello Mac app?

Currently when I click on a Trello link (for example, from an email notification I've received about a card) it opens up Trello in my browser. How do I set it up so that it opens my native Trello Mac app, which I have installed?

Hello R.R.S.

At this time, unfortunately, links will continue to open in a browser and not in the desktop app.  Currently, there is not a setting to change this.  While I don't know if this is a planned implementation of if it's on the radar, I would encourage you to submit this as a feature request by reaching out to ''

Up until recently, i had been able to click a link in a card in the trello desktop app and it would open as a tab in chrome. Now the links open up as blank pages and I have no idea why. I've reverted to using the browser version to skip the step of copy/pasting links. Any idea what's happening here?

Any update for this issue?
I'm also looking for a way to always open the desktop app when pressing on a link.
